Three time Belgian Pro League winner linked to Rangers vacancy after rejecting move to Saudi Arabia

Philippe Clement, who most recently managed Monaco, has been linked to the vacant Rangers post. As reported by HLN, the former Club Brugge and Genk head coach is one name being lined up to take over at the Scottish giants. While Clement did not succeed in France, his record in Belgium should excite fans of the blue side of Glasgow.

Between 2018 and 2021, the Belgian head coach won back to back titles. The first came with Genk, before he moved on to Club Brugge and won them two titles in a row. Clement played for both clubs during his time as a professional, winning the league with Club Brugge twice and the cup with Genk once.

Clement will be hoping that this past success will be looked upon more favorably than his recent spell with the side from the Principality. Since Clement left, Club Brugge won the league the same season, before falling away last year to a disappointing fourth place.

Clement did have an offer from the Saudi-Arabian league as well. However, he turned down the chance to manage Al-Shabab.
